In addition to his unrivaled skills on the skateboard, skate legend Steve Caballero is also an accomplished punk rocker and an illustrator as well. As a way to divulge these little known talents of Caballero, VANS decided to do what it knows best and add Caballero as the contributing illustrator to his very own signature skate shoes, the VANS Half Cab. Available starting this month and for this month only, select VANS retailers will begin to stock up on VANS Half Cab 20th Anniversary Edition – “Steve Cab”, a celebration of the man and the transformative sneaker that forever bears his name.
But that’s not all, VANS also brought Caballero together with fellow skates/musicians Ray Barbee, Tommy Guerrero, Chuck Treese, and John Cardiel as DJ at last week’s VANS Downtown Showdown Amsterdam, where VANS’ Steve Van Doren presented Caballero with a Half Cab-shaped birthday cake and skate ramp shaped like a giant Half Cab. Surrounded by families, old friends and new ones, it was certainly an evening not easily forget.
